Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read (even if, on occasion, I do not agree with the author).
I was a pair of boots on the ground in Iraq
First of all, you know those boots on the ground everybody’s still discussing whether we should deploy? Well, they’re already there. We are already effectively engaged in combat in Iraq, in direct contradiction of what President Obama said when he announced he was taking action against the Islamic State terrorists, telling the American people in an address from the White House that the mission “will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.” He said pretty much the same when he told troops at MacDill Air Force Base: “The American forces do not and will not have a combat mission.”
It’s just not true.
6 Reasons Barack Obama Is A Failed President
It's easy to just chalk up Barack Obama's terrible performance as President to "liberalism" or "incompetence," but it goes so much further than that. Obama is a ballerina running a steel mill, a fight fan working as a bouncer, a go cart aficionado racing in NASCAR.
Should we hope to die at 75?
Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.”
But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama administration.
Jimmy Fallon is coming, but where are the activists?
If Jimmy Fallon really wants to grab Mayor Rahm Emanuel's attention when he brings "The Tonight Show" to Chicago for another mutual ear-licking session, Jimmy might ask this:
When will Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson Sr. show up in Chicago to show Ferguson-style outrage over the assassination of 9-year-old Antonio Smith?
USPS: Where the customer is always last
Bang! Lee looked up from addressing a package while she waited in line for service at the post office. Despite a lobby packed with customers—without notice—a postal worker slammed down the service window gate and went to lunch, leaving Lee and the other patrons to fend for themselves.
I was just at a meeting with our national campaign team and wanted to loop you in to the discussion.
Here’s the latest with only 38 days to go before the Election:
- President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are spending MILLIONS to smear conservatives in the 50 most critical races across the nation.
- Powered by the President’s massive fundraising network, the liberals are now more than $27 MILLION ahead of us this cycle.
- We need 812 more members before the major end of quarter deadline to meet our goal.
